The Stanley Cup playoffs had ended but that didn’t mean the kids of Prince Rupert had had their fill of Canada’s game.
The Prince Rupert Minor Hockey Association and Tim Horton’s made sure of that. The organizations sponsored and hosted their day-long street hockey tournament at Seafest 2014, with multiple different divisions and age-groups.
